27th March 19
A fantastic day was had by over 2000 people who attended the Carnaval on the Cumbre, A Celebration of One School/One Site. It was a fabulous opportunity to also celebrate the absolute talent that we have in our School. Students danced, sang, acted, played sport and musical instruments, throughout the day to entertain the very appreciative audiences. The quality of the performances was a testament to each and every performer and their hard work and dedication and also the hard work, extra hours and the time put in by their teachers and coaches. Well done to all who participated! It was also fantastic to welcome so many volunteers, without them, the day would not have been possible. Thank you to every staff member, parent, student and member of our greater community who gave up their time to help with the organisation and running of the day.
One of the many highlights of the day was to welcome past students, staff and especially the founding member of our School, Mrs Veronica Barnes and her family. Mrs Barnes was touched by the reception she received and was honoured to say a few words during the official opening ceremony. During the opening our Head Girl and Boy welcomed everyone in English, Spanish and Russian, highlighting the diversity and the international aspect of our School. Mr Chris Akin, Head of School, Nick Rugg, Regional Managing Director Europe, International Schools Partnership, and Mr Martin Skelton, Director of Learning and Education International Schools Partnership, spoke with passion about the development of the School, the union of Primary and Secondary and The Lady Elizabeth School’s total commitment to learning. The Secondary Campus was officially opened by César Sánchez Pérez, ‘Presidente de la Diputación de Alicante’, who said that he was delighted to be invited to be part of the opening.
All in all, a wonderful day!
